Novak Djokovic entered the 2012 French Open as the No. 1 player in the world.
He'll leave the tournament still No. 1, but that could all change at some point in the near future.
Djokovic played well throughout the tournament, but then ran into Rafael Nadal in the final.
Here's a look at Djokovic's French Open.
Djokovic struggled in the opening set of the first round against Potito Starace, holding on to win in a tie-breaker 7-6 (3).
After that, he dominated, winning 6-3, 6-1.
Djokovic missed three break chances in the first set, but things began to click after that.
The second round saw Djokovic have an easier time to begin the match, winning the first set 6-0 over Blaz Kavcic.
Then, Kavcic began to hold his own, taking four set points from Djokovic in each of the second and third sets.
But Djokovic won six set points in each to take the three-set victory and move on to the third round.
Djokovic had his best match of the tournament in the third round against Nicolas Devilder.
The Serbian only allowed five set points in the match, winning 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.
The match only took one hour and 44 minutes, showing that Djokovic was on top of his game to advance to the next round.
The fourth round saw Djokovic experience some struggles as he dropped the first two sets to Andreas Seppi 6-4, 7-6 (5).
Djokovic's main problem was the fact that he struggled to get into a rhythm, having 17 unforced errors in the process.
Then, he recovered.
Djokovic got his game back and took the final three sets 6-3, 7-5, 6-3.
The comeback victory no doubt helped him in the next round.
Djokovic didn't drop the first two sets.
Instead, he won the first set 6-1, before dropping the next two sets to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-5, 7-5.
Then, it looked like Tsonga was going to pull the upset and send Djokovic home early as they battled to a tie-break in the fourth set.
But Djokovic managed to squeeze out the fourth set in the tie-breaker 7-6 (6).
From there, it was all Djokovic in the final set as he won 6-1.
I don't think it was the fact that Djokovic won his semifinal match over Roger Federer that was the surprise. I think the biggest surprise was the manner in which he did it.
Djokovic had no problem disposing of the world's No. 3 player, winning in three sets 6-4, 7-5, 6-3.
Although the scores looked close, it was never really that close.
Djokovic looked in control of the game throughout as Federer looked lost.
This match showed that Federer, in my opinion, will no longer compete for a title at the French Open.
Other people may say otherwise, but Federer looked lost on the clay surface throughout the tournament.
Djokovic didn't play poorly against Rafael Nadal, it's just Nadal was playing that good in the finals and throughout the tournament.
Nadal, who won his seventh French Open title, took the first two sets 6-4, 6-3, to establish control of the match.
Djokovic recovered in the third set to win 6-2.
Nadal wouldn't be denied the title as he won the fourth set to rebound from his only set loss of the entire tournament.
Now Djokovic will turn his focus to winning Wimbledon again this year and hanging on to his world No. 1 ranking.
All Djokovic has to do is make the Wimbledon semifinals to retain his No. 1 ranking, so it's likely he'll do that.
After that, all bets are off.
